Vacation Bible School 2017
Monday, June 12 – Thursday, June 15

This year’s theme will be Gadgets & Gizmos:  every kid is uniquely wired for one reason, and was wonderfully made in the image of God!

Each evening, we’ll have an optional dinner for families at 5:30pm, followed by programming from 6pm-8pm.

Register here!

Faith Town exists for children to personally experience God’s transforming love. The gospel is the foundation of our community. Relationships are essential to discovering how crazy God’s love is for us. No one has more potential to influence a child’s relationship with God than his or her family; therefore, we value families more than our programs. We invite you to experience God together with us.

INFANTS – KINDERGARTEN  |  What We Do

We create a fun and safe environment for your little ones to learn about God and His love for them. We look forward to teaching your toddlers that God loves them, God made them and Jesus wants to be their forever friend. Your preschoolers will be assigned to an age-appropriate small group class where they will learn God’s truth from Bible stories. They will be encouraged in large group to sing, dance, and interact with our storytellers who creatively teach Bible stories each week.

Nursery Care for Infant & Toddlers What To Expect:

Check-in: When you arrive at Grace, please bring your little one to Faith town and sign in in the nursery area. At this time you will receive a numbered tag.  If we need you for any reason during service your number will appear on a screen in Grace Hall.  Please bring diapers, bottles, pacifiers and anything special that will help keep your baby happy at Grace. Label all items that are brought in with your child.

Care: Our nursery volunteers have been chosen because of their love for babies, and their experience. Your baby will be changed at our changing station in the Infant classroom only. Children will be promoted from the Infant Room to the Toddler Room based on their motor development.

2’s Room What To Expect:

Check-in: When you arrive at Grace, please bring your little one to Faith Town and sign in in the nursery area. At this time you will receive a numbered tag.  If we need you for any reason during service your number will appear on a screen in Grace Hall.

“I like coming to Faith Town because my teacher is always excited to see me”

– 5 year old

Story Time: Children gather on the rug to play an activity. This helps them connect with each other and their small group leaders. They will hear a story about God and how He made them, loves them and wants to be their forever friend.

Potty Break: Please let the teacher in the class know if you are potty training. If possible have your toddler wear a pull-up. The teacher will assist a child at the potty with the door to the bathroom kept open. If your child is wearing a diaper they can be changed at the changing station in the 2’s bathroom or classroom station only.

Snack Time: We provide Goldfish crackers or Cheerios and water for snack. If your child has any allergies or dietary needs and cannot eat what we provide please inform the volunteer.

We promote children based on their development to the 2’s room.

3’s, 4’s, & Pre-K/Kindergarten Room What To Expect:

Check-in: When you arrive at Grace, find the Faith Town check in station.

Make it Fun: The children participate in activities designed to introduce the Bible story for the day. This time also helps the leaders connect with the kids.

Large Group: Children move to our large group room to sing, dance and hear a Bible story taught by our storytellers.

Small Group: This time includes a game or activity to help children apply the lesson to their everyday lives

Snack: We provide Goldfish crackers, pretzels and water on occasion for snack. If your child has any allergies or dietary needs and cannot eat what we provide please inform the volunteer.

Dismissal: Children will be sent home with a Parent Cue sheet from the lesson which has ideas on how to continue learning the Key Concept at home.

We promote children to these classes based on the calendar year and promotion takes place in August for the Pre-K.

1st-5TH GRADE

What We Do. We play fun, crazy games. We teach from God’s Word. We meet in small groups. We foster relationships. Most importantly, we create a space for kids to come to know Jesus’ love for them and in turn to love him. Our prayer is to create a fun, high-energy and safe environment for your child.

What to Expect
Check-In:  You will check your children in at our computerized check-in stations.

Plug-In Activities: This is a time for our leaders to get to know the children as they arrive before our program begins.

Large Group Experience: Large group consists of a memory verse challenge and a Bible story told by one of our creative storytellers. A “bottom line” teaching message is emphasized each week.

Small Groups: Kids are split into small groups by grade level. Each week they have opportunities to react and recreate the Bible story through discussion, art, and hands-on activities.

Wrap-Up: We wrap-up our time together by reviewing the Bible story, our bottom line message and the memory verse

New to Faith Town?

Look for the Faith Town check-in area. We will meet your family and check your child into our computerized check-in system. Once your family is checked in, one of our volunteers will be happy to show you the age appropriate room we have created for your child. You and your child will be given matching identification tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Both your child’s name tag and your tag bear a unique identification code. During checkout, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.
